We are delighted once again to offer this exceptional, correct car back onto market having spent the past 12 months with one of our Nottinghamshire based long term regular customers. This is a very rare opportunity to purchase a first class, fully rebuilt Triumph TR2 that has covered in the region of 1500 miles since a complete nut and bolt restoration in 2014. There is no doubt this TR has show winning potential and also boasts huge provenance being a genuine UK car with matching numbers, original registration mark that has been restored with photo record to original specification including interior and exterior colours. The car VAF 344 has absolute true provenance being completely correct and it is no doubt better than the day it left the factory. This outstanding vehicle was restored by a restoration expert with a keen eye for detail. Many years ago we sold the best MG Midget we had ever seen, restored by the same owner and this car was also restored to a totally original specification. This MGhas gone on to win multiple show winning events and since restoring the MG, a Triumph GT6 was restored and has since featured in magazines with the quality of restoration being one of the main focuses of the article. The results of this long term TR2 rebuild are impressive and the entire restoration has been done to a very high standard. VAF 344 was registered new in Cornwall and an initial rebuild in the South West began well over thirty years ago. It was not completed or put back on the road and several years ago was purchased by the restorer. Everything on this car was either restored or replaced by new items. The car is totally original and it resembles the car as it left the factory and has a totally exceptional, immaculate underside. It has overdrive on 2nd, 3rd and 4th, has a heater and is re-trimmed in half leather. It retains positive earth and the colour is Signal Red with Matador Red interior with matching wool carpets. All chrome is either new or re-chromed and a new hood and newwindscreen have been purchased. The engine has been stripped down and piston rings and main bearings replaced, a new oil pump has been fitted and the timing chain replaced. New parts include a fuel pump, water pump, dynamo, restored distributor, rebuilt carburettors, control box, fuse box, wiring loom, solenoid, master and slave cylinders, heater matrix, dash instruments, all lights and many more. There is a photographic record of the work and a comprehensive invoice file. The last two owners are very well known to us and the car has proven faultless on the road since its full restoration. Prior to being sold by us in 2018, several hundred faultless miles were covered with its Yorkshire Dales based previous owner and in 2017 the car won 1st place at the Cumbria Classic Car Show. VAF 344 is top class order in every respect and there's no doubt this is a unique opportunity to purchase a standard specification, matching numbers original RHD car in as new condition. We would expect a restoration tothis standard could cost in excess of 60,000 therefore representing an excellent opportunity. Price: 42,995

This beautifully presented Bentley MKVI Standard Saloon was supplied new on the 24th October 1949 by Jack Barclay Ltd, Hanover Square, London W1 to Eric Low Beer Esq of the Grade II Listed 1439 Medieval Norton Priory in West Sussex. The Bentley was supplied new in Duo Grey with Light Blue leather upholstery and Dark Blue carpets. After three years, the Bentley sold to a G.L Saunders Esq of Knowle Park in Warwickshire and by 1960 the Bentley was back in London W1, owned by Clayton Cars (London) Ltd in Bruton Place. The Bentley was then owned by Chancers Pit Garage in Worcestershire right through to 1977 when the car was sold to a Mr Watson in Gloucester. From 1980 the Bentley was with one owner for 19 years in Cheltenham, 9 years with a second Cheltenham based owner before selling to the most recent owner in Derbyshire back in 2008. 886 PBP was subject of a bare metal, extensive restoration with its most recent Cheltenham based owner but sadly due to ill health the program of work was curtailed. TheBentley was sold in 2008 and the most recent owner commissioned the completion of the major restoration. Having had an exceptional re-paint, the car was treated to re-chromed brightwork (Derby Plating), careful attention was given to the original seat bases and new draught excluders, a new headlining, door cards, carpets and boot carpet were all fitted to ensure a high quality, luxurious finish to the inside of the car. Mechanical work included rebuilding the carburettors, brake servo, replacing gearbox mountings, leather spring gaiters, anti-roll bars, shock absorbers, spring shackles, rear axle mounts, steering column gaiter, fuel pump, ignition system and various new engine gaskets. Door locks were replaced, pedal rubbers replaced, the sunroof mechanism overhauled, new Michelin tyres and a new windscreen fitted, and the MKVI Bentley was also treated to a new clutch, new master cylinder, new exhaust sections and exhaust manifold nuts and gaskets and various switches, knobs and seals replaced.This Bentley MKVI has clearly had very little use since completion of its long-term restoration and it really does present in exceptional condition. The Standard Steel body is outstanding with excellent straight panels, the underneath has been superbly restored and having a first class, gleaming paint finish with the exceptional brightwork, the car is ready for shows and events. The interior has been beautifully restored whilst still retaining much of its original leather that tells us this has never been a 'basket case' or badly stored and deteriorated car. The leather work has a lovely patina and feel to it and with beautiful woodwork, carpets, working sunroof and headlining the Bentley does offer that luxurious, high quality finish that is expected of this wonderful marque. The boot compartment is superbly presented and the engine bay execptional benefitting from some serious attention to detail. 886 PBP does not disappoint on the road with a strong 4257cc engine holding very good oil pressureoffering impressive performance. The manual gearbox changes up and down smoothly with no signs of major wear, another clear indication this car has led a sheltered life. With its rebuilt suspension and braking system the Bentley is a true delight on the road and offers a very special driving experience. The MKVI was known for its refined, responsive drive and this example demonstrates why these cars were and are now still highly sought for their wonderful driving experience. This model was capable of 100mph and whilst we would not attempt anything near this, this very sharp, fit and healthy MKVI certainly feels like it wants to be driven and feels very comfortable underload with excellent power and acceleration delivery. The independent front suspension and leaf-sprung 'live' rear axle really contribute to making this such an incredibly superb car to drive and we are confident it will not disappoint. 886 PBP is a car to summer tour with, it would be ideal for long distance, for taking on theContinent with its impressive performance, high quality ride and with its working sunroof it will make summer rallies and tours even more pleasurable. The Bentley comes with thousands of pounds worth of invoices for the recent expenditure, RREC copy build sheets and continuation logbook copy, tool kit and retains its original chassis and engine confirming this is a matching numbers car.

This wonderful driving, long distance touring Austin Healey is a matching numbers car, supplied new for the LHD North American market in Colorado Red, built on the 19-22nd June 1959. The car, confirmed by the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate was built by the Austin Motor Company in the UK and supplied new out of Philadelphia, USA with wire wheels, overdrive, heater, adjustable steering column and laminated windscreen. The Healey spent 31 years in the USA before being registered in the UK during 1993 (three years after its arrival). In 2004 the most recent owner bought the car and has kept it in Amsterdam, using it for long distance touring in Europe. Over the past fifteen years the Healey has successfully toured down to the South of France and back to the Netherlands, tackled the Harz mountain run in Germany, done the German Lower Saxony run, Hamburg classic run and has been to Goodwood Revival three times. The car has been thoroughly enjoyed and has proven to be a strong, robustclassic that is capable of serious mileage. On the car's arrival in the UK in 1990, it was subject of a major restoration. The bodyshell was stripped, sandblasted and then completely rebuilt with new panels to include new steel front and rear wings, new steel boot lid, outer sills, inner sills, intermediate sill panels, complete aluminium doors, front and rear outriggers, both left hand and right hand main floor pans, front floors, rear floors, both rear inner wings, door shut panels and hinge panels.

The Healey was treated to a new exhaust system, the carburettors were rebuilt, the differential was treated to new gaskets and diff pinion oil seal, new brake discs fitted, new king pins and trunnions fitted, shock absorbers and later new rear springs, bushes and shackles. In total, 47 invoices cover all restorationwork carried out totalling a staggering 24,000 between 1990 and 1993. The labour at this time was charged out at 13.50 per hour as way of comparison against restoration costs today. On completion, the Healey was MOT tested in 1993 with a recorded mileage of 80556 and registered WYJ 270.In 2004 when sold to the most recent owner, the Healey had covered 9000 miles since the restoration. A couple of years into ownership and after around 1000 miles of use, now 10000 miles and 13 years on since the original restoration had been completed, the owner decided to take the car to an Austin Healey specialists for a further program of work. The Austin Healey was treated to electronic ignition, a multi blade cooling fan and new top hose, new manifold to cylinder head studs, a new flexible oil pressure pipe, new exhaust manifold gaskets, new jet/diaphragm assemblies in the carburettors, new carb linkage bushes, new throttle return spring and fulcrum bush, new rebuilt exchange oil and water gauge, new upratedfront shock absorbers with new fulcrum pins and bushes including rebound buffers, new front steering grease nipples and new anti roll bar poly bushes. The Healey was also treated to a hard top and by now showing some paintwork blemishes, the Healey was treated to some paintwork, including under the wheel arches. This work cost almost 11000 and the Healey was now ready for European long-distance touring. Since the most recent program of work the Healey has proven to be ideal for long distance driving and has covered a further 6000 miles or so. The car has arrived with us in excellent mechanical order, it drives beautifully, and its rebuilt engine holds excellent oil pressure and offers impressive performance. The four-speed gearbox and overdrive perform perfectly and the car handles, steers and brakes very well. The car presents very well with a lovely, nicely aged deep paint finish on the fully restored bodyshell, it has smart brightwork, the Cream with red piping leather trim has a lovely patinaover 25 years on since the re-trim and the engine bay and boot are in clean condition. The Healey is nicely finished off with an excellent hard top and the car is ready for next adventure, no doubt some more on the Continent touring as the car is still in its original LHD format.

We are delighted to have the opportunity of offering this magnificent, beautifully presented AC Aceca onto the market with a recorded mileage, believed genuine of just 29000 miles. During the 1950's AC enlisted the aid of genius race chassis designer John Tojeiro in creating a sports car to boost sales of the AC marque. His subsequent creation was the Ace which appeared at Earls Court in 1953 with its tubular ladder type chassis with all round independent suspension by traverse springs - the first British sportscar to be thus equipped. The AC offered immense road holding and handling and the car could easily out pace many of its bigger rivals and it soon established an enviable reputation in sporting events around the World. The AC Aceca Coupe followed in 1954, a beautifully proportioned early example of a GT type body. 240 SPF was first registered on the 10th November 1960 to AC Cars Ltd, Thames Ditton and was purchased new at the 1960 Motor Show by a Mr and Mrs Cane. They both invested in newcars, Mr Cane purchased an AC Greyhound and this Aceca was for Mrs Cane. She feared the Bristol engine would be 'too fast', and it was agreed that the car would be returned to AC for the installation of their own 2 litre engine. Mrs Cane kept the car for 17 years and throughout its early life the car was maintained by AC Cars Limited in Thames Ditton. We have invoices throughout the 1970's for various maintenance and upkeep and in 1977 the AC was sold with a recorded mileage of 15,000. The AC's second owner was another lady, the proprietor of a North London Hair Salon and in 1979 the car was back at Thames Ditton for its annual MOT and various mechanical maintenance and servicing. In 1983 the AC headed briefly north, it sold to a gentleman in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, now with 18000 miles recorded. The Aceca only stayed in Yorkshire for one year and in 1984 was sold to Prop Jet Limited (later Fortis Aviation Ltd), registered at Stansted Airport. It stayed in the same ownership for a further 17years and in 2001 with 27,500 miles recorded the AC returned to Northern England, residing with a private owner in Oldham. In 2013 with 28000 miles, the AC sold to the most recent owner, a Lancashire based collector who has covered very little mileage, the car arriving with us recording less than 29000 miles. Over the past six years with its most recent owner, the car has been taken to a beautiful standard having had a complete full re-paint, full re-trim and the original AC 2 litre engine has been completely stripped down and rebuilt and is with the car. The AC is currently equipped with a Triumph 2.5 litre engine which offers outstanding and much improved performance against its original engine. The AC 2 litre engine was not the most desirable of options, however the original unit has been rebuilt and kept with the car for reasons of provenance. For performance and usability, it makes sense to keep the current, rebuilt, strong and superbly fit engine in the car. There is no doubt 240 SPF is avery special car. The mileage certainly fits the history and its believed the first lady owner only covered 15000 miles in the car up to 1979, it was the couples second car having the AC Greyhound as its stable mate. The mileage is warranted from 1978 to 2019 so we know it has covered just 14000 miles in the last 41 years, and having the cars 1970's Thames Ditton service history is also very impressive. With a superb traceable history and presenting in such beautiful condition, we know this is a very sought-after car. The AC presents superbly with its original first-class aluminium body finished in the cars original colour of Blue. The paint finish gleams and is of an exceptional high standard, bright work and wire wheels are in excellent order and the interior is beautifully re-trimmed. The engine bay presents superbly, and having been in the hands of a meticulous collector, the car is in excellent condition throughout. Having covered hardly any mileage over the past six years, the AC will befully serviced and MOT tested for its next owner, and the original freshly rebuilt AC engine will be delivered with the car. This is a true collector's piece, a rare iconic car for the sporting motorist and collector, seeking a hand built classic offering comfortable and elegant high speed motoring. Photos of original engine during rebuild also attached. Price: 139,995

This exceptionally well presented, rare Packard 22nd Series Six Sedan was built in RHD format on the 24th February 1948 at the Packard Motor Companies Factory in Detroit, USA and then shipped to Cape Town, South Africa where it was first registered. The car comes with the most magnificent, detailed, comprehensive history and has arrived with us beautifully restored having had 31,000 spent since 2009. 164 XUT has led a fascinating life and comes with a packed history file of interesting stories and letters covering almost its entire life. The car was first owned by a farmer, Mr Havenger, in Rhodesia who owned the Packard for around 20 years. The Packard was to be eventually used as a tractor and by June 1968 it was found in an abandoned state and derelict in a Tobacco farm field. The car was discovered by Adrian Trebicki who negotiated to buy the car by trading a crate of beer. A memo notebook from 1968 is with the car detailing new parts and work being carried out to the car and it was this ownerwho kept the car for over 40 years, eventually shipping the car to UK as he career led him here in the 1980's. The new owner restored the Packard in Rhodesia during the late 1960's and put the car back in regular use, even touring South Africa at one stage. A comprehensive file of notes and invoices from the late 1960's and early 1970's is with the car. The long term second owner moved away from Rhodesia to work in Ghana during 1976, driving the car from Rhodesia to his parents in Pretoria, South Africa. The fascinating history file still retains letters from the Exchange Control Department at Standard Bank in Rhodesia to the owner's parents as the Packard had not been exported correctly back into South Africa, just driven over the border from Rhodesia and left at his parents' property. Eventually, after several months of correspondence the issue was dealt with. There are even letters from the owner Adrian to his parents from Ghana in the file, along with his International Driving Permit that isstamped as 'not valid' for Ghana. In 1981 Adrian Trebicki moved away from Ghana to work for Leyland Trucks in the UK and shipped the Packard over from his parents in Pretoria. Even this led to a story, with welding bottles on the ship falling and damaging the cars roof. A whole file of paperwork details the saga on its arrival in the UK. On the 19th March 1981 the car was MOT tested by Naylors Motor Sales (Leyland) Ltd in Leyland, Preston with a recorded mileage of 31871 and UK registered for the first time. The paperwork suggests this was the correct mileage from new. Insurance paperwork throughout the 1980's and 1990's is with the Packard but the car was unused throughout this period. In 2009, after 41 years, the Packard changed hands, selling to an architect in Wetherby, West Yorkshire. Having been unused since its arrival and MOT test in the UK, the Packard needed restoration and the new owner then spent 31,000 taking the car to a beautiful standard. Having covered around 200 miles since MOT in1981, the Packard was put back on the road and MOT tested at 32084 miles 28 years later in 2009. Whilst the Packard was re-commissioned and MOT tested in 2009, the actual major restoration lasted over three years. Invoices, photographs and a six page detailed report itemises all work carried out. The body required major restoration and a full re-paint, all brightwork was removed and sent for re-chroming, rubbers replaced, new tyres fitted, the upholstery was beautifully re-trimmed, all gauges and dials overhauled, and electrics renewed as required. The Packard was mechanically overhauled and since then has been beautifully maintained, carefully looked after and has covered less than 1000 miles since completion of the major restoration. 164 XUT has now arrived with us in beautiful condition with stunning paintwork, a lovely straight restored bodyshell and the attention to detail is evident with its beautifully presented interior and clean engine bay. The Packard arrives with us in strong mechanicalorder, its six cylinder engine is in excellent order, the column change gearbox a delight to use and the Packard handles and brakes well and is lovely to cruise in. This really must have one of the most comprehensive history files we have seen, the car has a real story and it's interesting to read how a family cherished and really loved this car for most of its life. Adding to the many files and several boxes of invoices, letters, correspondence, notes, notebooks, e-mail dialogues and technical notes is a beautiful original Packard Service Manual for both body and chassis, original parts catalogue, handbooks, data sheets, brochures and much more. This is a special car and it must be preserved, enjoyed and cherished. There probably isn't another one in the World like this. Price: 29,995

This is a matching numbers left hand drive, non-sunroof very early SC, originally supplied to Japan and by chassis number is the 10th 911 officially imported there back in 1978, spending the majority of its life in the land of the rising sun before coming over to the UK in 2014. Finished in its original Guards Red and complemented by a set of uber rare RUF Speedline wheels, recently refinished in satin black to compliment the dark trim elsewhere on the car, this really is a great looking 911. It presents beautifully, with factory correct panel gaps and lovely paint that positively pops in the sunlight. The car carries a light feel and so the foglamps have been removed, as have the painted headlight rims, though these remain with the car and are in excellent condition. Fitted with a lightweight interior in black, including door cards, perforated corduroy Recaro style seats (at a cost of almost 3000) and a rare RUF leather bound steering wheel, whilst the remainder of the interior is delightfullyfactory original and in excellent order, with no cracked or warped plastics to be seen and everything working just as it did 41 years ago. Loved by the current custodian for 2 years, having been purchased from a Porsche specialist back in June 2017, car has been further improved with a series of small cosmetic jobs including a new front bumper set and all rubbers, repainted rear valance, rear deck and bootlid in addition to those restored Speedlines. A stickler for period detail, a correct set of 1970's raised digit number plates have been fitted too. Whilst all this makes for great reading, what makes this car really special is its structural integrity. Having lived in a completely salt free environment for most of its life, it has never had the opportunity to corrode from the bottom up, as most 911's do and when we first put it up on our ramps, we were amazed to see all of the original factory underseal completely intact; something the last owner managed to preserve for posterity with a recentapplication of clear wax. In the last 2 years the car has been very lightly used with just over 1500 km's covered, so the total mileage stands at 145,000 km's since new, which equates to just over 90,000 miles in 41 years. Since 2017, the 911 has been serviced 3 times, so it's absolutely on the button and there's a comprehensive history folder that stands testament to the care it's received over the years. From a mechanical standpoint, the car is completely standard, with the exception of a set of stainless SSI's which make a lovely noise, popping purposefully on the overrun and adding a useful power boost to around 190bhp. Unsurprisingly, it drives beautifully, just as an original well sorted 911 should; it's highly communicative, responding to the lightest of driver inputs. We love cars like this - that have never been apart, bodged and then 'restored', either properly or otherwise; there's an old adage that they're only original once and this is such a car. It still carries its original factoryfloor mats and the 'Mizwa' supplying dealer sticker is still in the rear 'screen - just lovely!; We've never seen a 911 of this age in such an exceptionally correct state of preservation and the last owner sold the car with a genuinely heavy heart in order to fund the purchase of a classic Range Rover. He knows that he'll struggle to find another 911 that's as delightful. This is a very special 911 in a perfect specification - a car to cherish. Available at 52995; if you're looking for a 'proper' matching numbers 911 with an interesting history that really is as good underneath as it is on top, you will struggle to find a better example with this level of originality this side of 60k, if perhaps at all.

The Corvette C1 needs no introduction as it is undoubtedly America's most iconic sports car of the 1950's.

This low mileage genuine factory Series One 4.2 Manual with Overdrive XJ6 was manufactured on the 8th February 1972, finished in Jaguar Light Blue with Dark Blue leather upholstery and supplied new by the Inverness Motor Company. The 4.2 Manual Overdrive model is without doubt the most desirable of the early XJ6 range and is finished in one of the most favoured colour combinations as per its factory specification. HHR 258K has a recorded mileage of just 72,000 supported by a comprehensive file of documentation. Having spent its very early life in the Scottish Highlands, the Jaguar was sold in August 1976 (original 1976 sales invoice included in the history file) to a Mr Minihans in the Clackmannanshire region of Scotland who owned the car for almost 30 years. The Jaguar was sold on behalf of a Stirling based gentleman and was at the time registered with the private registration mark JAG 228. The XJ6 was in gentle use throughout the late 1970's and 80's but in 1989, the Jaguar was laid up for tenyears with a mileage of 54894 miles. The XJ6 was back on the road in 1999 and its long-term owner covered a further 1000 miles before selling the car in 2003 after 29 years of ownership. The Jaguar moved from Scotland all the way down to Wiltshire where its new owner spent significant amounts of money on mechanical improvements. It was treated to electronic ignition, a long life custom-built stainless-steel exhaust system, rebuilt carburettors, new brake pads, overhauled overdrive unit and the gearbox was stripped down and new bearings and seals fitted. From 2005 to 2014 the Jaguar covered in the region of 10,000 miles clearly proving a reliable, usable car. The Jaguar changed hands during 2014 and whilst with its new Lincolnshire based owner the car covered a further 6000 miles and was treated to some body restoration work (photographs on file), new front and rear bumpers including over-riders, renewed fuel tanks and various electrical repairs. With a good history, low mileage, fantastic colourcombination, largely original trim, bolt on chrome wires and a fabulous strong, fit engine and gearbox with working overdrive, this XJ6 is excellent value and an ideal car for regular use. HHR 258K holds the road superbly, has impressive power and performance and will be supplied with a full 12 months MOT and freshly serviced. The car has lovely paintwork of a high standard, bumpers are excellent having been recently replaced, the engine bay is very original, the original Dark Blue leather is fabulous, and the underside totally rock solid in structurally excellent order.

This is a truly wonderful find and most certainly a car for the discerning buyer who understands the rarity, value and qualities in finding a car so original and correct. Not only is this genuine 3.5 Litre DHC Jaguar MKIV the most original 1940's or 1950 'Jaguar we have seen, it has only covered a genuine 78,000 miles from new and has never required dismantling or fully restoring and is a true time warp in strong mechanical condition. LHU 616 was first registered on 31st August 1948 and left the factory in Suede Green. It was supplied new by Western Motors (Bristol) to Benjamin Escott Fish in the affluent suburb of Redland in Bristol. The first owner was very elderly and in June 1949 the Jaguar was sold to A.W Kelly in the Ashley Down area of Bristol. Nineteen years later in 1968 the Jaguar sold to J.A Venn just a mile or two away in the Bristol 9 area. In 1970 LHU 616 was registered to its fourth owner in the City of Bath and until 2015 the Jaguar had been owned by the same family, husband andthen wife. Three years ago we sold the Jaguar to the last owner who has covered around 1000 faultless miles in the car and we are now delighted to have this wonderful Jaguar back with us. This is such a special car in terms of its originality, low mileage and the long term family ownership further enhances the desirability of this rare DHC Jaguar. LHU 616 has a comprehensive history file that includes 30 MOT certificates dating back to 1968. The Jaguar has had brief spells off the road but was regularly used for short journeys with the mileage from the early MOT's at 74558 to today's mileage of over 78,000 proving this. We also have 30 tax discs dating back to 1953 and a Bath and West Chronicle newspaper article related to the car in 1989. Further paperwork tells us the Jaguar was entered in the Jaguar Driver's Club Concours d'elegance rally at Beaulieu in May 1992 and the vehicle took second place. The Jaguar Driver's Club correspondence from the early 1990's also confirm the car as original withspecial original equipment in place to include Ace wheel discs, mounted hand lamps and windtone horns. The last owner treated the Jaguar to a rebuilt set of wire wheels and new tyres, Ace wheel discs are still with the car. We have receipts for various maintenance and service items over the years but the most significant invoices dates back to the 1980's when the Jaguar engine was subject of a major rebuild. The engine was totally stripped down and block was treated to new liners and new pistons. The block face was surface ground and worn camshaft bearings replaced. The crankshaft was re-ground and main and big end bearings were replaced. The timing chain was also replaced and the cylinder head was rebuilt with new valves and guides. The oil pump was stripped and rebuilt and all new gaskets fitted. Further mechanical work at this point included a new clutch, radiator, water pump rebuild and new kingpins. We can report that today, LHU 616 drives superbly with a strong engine holding excellent oilpressure. The car cruises comfortably, handles and steers well and brakes are efficient. The four speed gearbox changes up and down smoothly and the Jaguar is a true delight to drive. Whilst covering very low mileages annually, the Jaguar has been used regularly over the past three years and comes to us on the button and driving superbly. LHU 616 has so much character, patina and honesty.The paint is old, faded and there are areas that have had local paintwork many, many years ago and we've have long considered painting the car and taking it to a top class finish. Considering there may not be another highly original example like this in the World, we've decided to leave the paintwork alone and leave this decision to the next custodian. We would enjoy being involved in any cosmetic improvements so we are happy to discuss painting the car for the next owner if desired. Importantly the body is excellent, strong and has straight panels and it is clear the car has had a sheltered life. It has never beenleft to deteriorate, get damp and has clearly spent most of its life in a dry garage. The underside is excellent, the car structurally strong and the bright work not perfect but on the whole, very good. The car has an older hood in very good order with no tears and the interior is just an absolute delight. The leather is totally original and wonderful with lovely aged creases and nicely faded colour. It looks how it should; it has the smell of original leather and is very impressive. Door cards are original, woodwork is lovely and original, the correct gauges are in excellent order, the tool kit is in place and the carpets are very good consdering their age. This really is a remarkable find and there are not many 1940's Jaguar's with this level of originality left. With only around 184 genuine RHD 3.5 DHC's ever made, LHU 616, number 79 offers a wonderful opportunity for the collector and enthusiast. Price: 89,995

This is an opportunity to own and enjoy a true collector's piece being one of reportedly just three Jaguar E-Type's known to have survived in the special-order colour of 'Porsche Tangerine'. WLO 257G is a UK RHD matching numbers car that was manufactured on the 30th October 1968 and was distributed by Henlys, London in its Special-order exterior paint, Black leather upholstery and with manual transmission. The previous owner learned through the Jaguar Enthusiast Club that two of Henleys Directors had ordered an E-Type each in this colour and Jaguar told them that they could only do this 'special order' if they ordered a minimum of six matching cars. It was extremely rare for Jaguar to stray from their own colour schemes on offer, but Henleys would have undoubtedly had elevated influence given they were England's leading motor agents at the time. From the comprehensive history with the car we know it was sold to a lady with 600 miles recorded in 1970 at just two years old. The E-Type was later ownedby the UK Director for Seaforth Export Ltd who had offices in London, Tel Aviv, New York, Dusseldorf and Stockholm. The UK Director and owner of the car, Mr Campbell kept the car until 1978 with a mileage warranted at 34,400 and by now the car had been colour changed to Red. The car was then sold by the London based E-Type Centre to a private owner in Poole, Dorset who kept the car for 19 years, selling it in 1997 with a mileage of 55965. Invoices for maintenance and servicing are with the car right throughout the 1980's and 1990's. From 1997/1998 the E-Type was in South Wales and this is where the car has spent the majority of the past twenty years plus. WLO 257G had two owners in South Wales before arriving with us in 2016 with 78,000 warranted miles covered from new. MOT records date back to 1978 but we can see from this documentation the E-Type covered 22,000 miles during its time in South Wales. By 2016, the E-Type arrived with us in North Yorkshire looking externally rather tatty butremarkably original inside. At this point we commissioned a programme of refurbishment work at our Malton Coachworks restoration facility. The E-Type was completely stripped down to the a rolling shell and the body was then fully prepared with interior and gearbox/engine removed for a complete inside and out re-paint in the cars correct original colour of Porsche Tangerine. The body was restored as required and then professionally prepared for an outstanding full re-paint. The underside was also fully re-painted and the glass like finish is equally as impressive underneath the car. WLO 257G was built up with new lights, rubbers, seals, trims, wing beading, clips, joints, screws, hinge bushes, springs and renewed chrome work. The 78,000 mile from new engine was checked over, found in strong condition and then treated to extensive detailing prior to re-fitting to the car. The gearbox was fully overhauled prior to re-fit and the differential unit also fully rebuilt. The E-Type was then treated topowder coated suspension arms, air intake and air filter housing. During built up, the E-Type was treated to new suspension bushes, ball joints, ball joint boots, new wheel bearings, front and rear shock absorbers, new brake calipers, new brake discs and pads, new brake master cylinder, all new brake flexi hoses, new alternator and belts, new coolant hoses, re-conditioned radiator, new manifold to head gasket, new inlet to head gasket, new manifolds, new stainless steel exhaust system, new clutch and slave cylinder, new engine and gearbox mountings, all new ignition items and various electrical work. The E-Type was then treated to a new set of chrome wire wheels and new tyres, re-conditioned hood frame, brand new Black mohair hood, re-trimmed door cards, centre console, leather seats and brand new carpet set and boot kit. On completion we sold the E-Type to a long-term customer, JEC member and friend of ours back in South Wales. Since then, WLO 257G has covered in the region of 1000 miles and hasbeen beautifully detailed and taken to many shows and events. The E-Type has attended South Wales JEC events and enjoyed fine weather use only. The car returns to us in truly outstanding condition with a first class bodyshell demonstrating excellent straight panels and gaps, a truly outstanding gleaming paint finish, a first class show standard underside, engine bay and boot compartment, an excellent well-presented upholstery and stunning gleaming brightwork. The car is quite simply outstanding and on the road this E-Type is equally as impressive. The lovely original six cylinder engine pulls strongly holding very good oil pressure, it feels, performs and sounds superb and the rebuilt all syncro gearbox offers smooth, perfect changes, the differential is lovely and quiet, handling and braking are first class having been re-conditioned and rebuilt and everything functions as it should. WLO 257G has been rebuilt to an exceptional standard and with its impressive provenance, almost unique factorycolour, it is a true genuine collectors piece that will prove very difficult to repeat.
